“The Democratic Party left me...”
By all means, the DNC needs to be as ideologically pure as still being Muslim Brotherhood friendly can still be. It is a winning strategy for them and I’m shaking in my boots that they’ve hit on the idea.
There is no room for southern white males in the democrat party. They tried a white male carpetbagger that didn’t even live in the district, but that didn’t work out for them either.
My Father and Grandfather were “yellow dog democrats”. I had never heard the phrase “blue dog democrats” until maybe 10 years ago. Now it seems to be the preferred one.
Jimmy Carter did the impossible. He got my Father to vote for a republican. He voted for Reagan and never looked back.
I agree! Keep the Identity politics and love for Islam going Dems!
There are no blue dog dems. They are extinct. ComDems ended them.
I think the opposite.
If the GOP doesn’t stop wasting its time on a counterproductive effort on healthcare, and start actually doing the things Trump was elected by Americans for, he is going to squander his edict, and leave a severely damaged GOP which will once again begin it’s downward slope of globalism, which had been completely destroying it for years.
Just my opinion.
Heath Shuler retired after 3 terms. Not defeated.
Idiot author. Dems are looking for huge pickup in numbers for 2018?
How fookin stewpet are you?
Here are some real math numbers, yuh retard.
So, my response:
1st. 2018 is not going to end well for them. They have 25 seats up, with 11 vulnerable. Compare that to the Republicans who have only seats up with merely 2 vulnerable.
Lets just say losing 30% cor the Dems would be a friggin disaster but, not as bad as 2020....more later.
2nd. SCOTUS...3 more turns at bat over the next 8 years.
3rd. Federal Judges. Over the next 7.5 years we will realign more than 1/2 or more than 700 Federal Judges and may even break up pesky courts like the 9th.
Hell, we could replace a few annoying judges in Hawaii.
4th. The Wall.
5th. Obamacare will be repealed.
6th. Lower Capital gains tax and offer enticing tax advantages to repatriate some of the $3 Trillion offshore and put that capital to work investing in factories and new business ideas.
This will invigorate the economy.
7th. 2020. Dems have 11 Senate seats up, compared to 22 for Republicans.
We probably have a net gain of 3 for the Senate.
All 435 seats in Congress are up but, if we can get the issues of healthcare coverage, The economy and the wall in progress as well at least SCOTUS we will probably have an increase in the house as well(I am still studying that batlefield and dont have numbers yet)
So why all the fighting from the Dems and these charges which are no more than vapor?
Well, their product sucks. Its a stew of hate, Socialism/Marxist utopian ideals and more segregation of society by invented classes of aggrieved people.
But, the real kicker is this about Reapportionment. Can you say Entropy?
8. Yeah thats right. With more wins under the belt of the Republicans we will have a larger swath of land to carve up because the census will take place, which the predicate for redistricting and guess who wins that fight no matter what?
Republicans and we get an increase in key states we will continue to win. Alabama, Georgia and Florida will gain 1 more representative in the house, who will likely be a Republican
However, Texas will gain 3 or 4 representatives locking up the south for Republicans over the next decade.
So, in 2020 we will gain further majorities in the house and senate, redistrict in our favor, we will be in the middle of an economy that out performs all other nations, 2 SCOTUS or more will be seated in our favor, 300-400 Federal judges are seated Obamacare/Check, Tax Policy/Check, The Wall/Check, Fair Trade/Check, ISIS Dead/Check, Russia petitions for statehood (jus kee dean), Trump Re-elected / Yuge Check.
And the dems wander the wilderness for 10 years because they stand zero chance of doing anything significant after 2020.
And the DNC is not only running an insane $3.5 million dollars in debt but, their fundraising is at the lowest in 14 years.
And they have no candidate for 2020 as yet but, their current financial or intellectual leadership.
Oh, and that Trump meme Hes going to step down! Uhmmm...Boo Chit.
Hes already fundraising for his 2020 PAC with $12,000,000 cash on hand.
Thats right. After disbursements hes got $12 million.
Thats debt free money.
Oh, and the RNC is cash flow positive with $44,000,000 in the bank.
I ask you, at this point, who is going to win?
Democrats are so broke they cant pay attention and have zero money to support any war but.
Cheap azz Chinese knockoff of an intellect.
So, get use to Donald Trump being president for 8 years.
*seriously unpopular Republican president*
I beg to disagree with that statement. Trump may be unpopular with the haters, but a substantial majority elected him... so it can’t be “seriously”... However, from their viewpoint, there is only one viewpoint and that is theirs! They write like their thoughts and feelings are the only ones on this earth... everyone must think like they do.
Trump is different... and that’s why we voted for him. As for the republicans and the democrats.. they are one and the same.. with a little more commie in the dems, but “dear friends” one and all... plus they are all too good to associate with the man we elected! I hope we can get rid of a lot of them next cycle... Please, God... deliver us from the elite left in both parties!!!!!!
HARD LEFT!!! The Democrats need to veer off past Karl Marx. Really, really go left. They need to do that if they’re ever going to win again. I keep screaming it. They need to just do it. Trust me, Dems. You won’t regret it. Ever.
Ah, it’s fun to hear the Dems setting themselves up for a disappointment in 2018 as crushing as the Trump victory in 2016. The reason this author doesn’t want “Blue Dog” Dems is simple: it would constitute a concession to the right, perhaps even an accommodation. Not one step back, Comrades! World socialism today! Best of luck, dumbasses.
That right there is a myth. It was Johnson with almost entirely Republican support (or the other way around, actually) that passed all the civil rights legislation. Why would those opposed to that legislation switch in protest to the party that passed it?
It's a long-standing claim by the Democrats intended to white wash their racist history (and current barely closeted racism).
The blue dogs weren’t whipped out in 2010 and 2014. They had been systematically driven from the party since the Clinton days.
Blue Dogs would be the best thing that could happen to the Dhimmicraps.
Hey, they don’t want non-Stalinists in the Democrat party, that’s on them.
